My husband just switched neurologists after 18 years. Was feeling that previous doc was really not paying attention to needs and concerns. We were very happy with the new doc and he made lots of changes in meds. My husband is now taken 8mg of ropinirole , 8 mg of carb/levo 25/100 and wearing a 2 mg Neupro patch. we have gave it lots of time, and lots of adjustments. but now he is falling a lot and sometimes seems in a daze. I am wondering if this is from med changes which have occured over the last 3 months.. He previously was taken 2 - 6mg ropinirole extended realease and no patch. He has had DBS surgery in 2007 and just had batteries replaced for the 2nd time 2 weeks ago. I am at a loss as to how to help him, for up to this point he has stayed basically active, but the new doc says "maybe he should stay home more"" at his age and how long he has had PD. He is 75 years old and has PD for 18 years. It is my feeling not to let him quit. Can anybody else shed some light??
